“We’re moving forward on the planning for that right now, we’re looking toward the next phase of the study,” Bellone told the Farmingdale Observer, referring to planning for the railroad station as well as a bus rapid transit system. “It makes sense and can start to be implemented at a low cost. Conceptual study for bus rapid transit concluded that it makes sense. We’ll be doing more detailed planning that will get us to the point where we’re ready for a detailed design.”
